Thanks to an updated and enhanced engine lineup, the 2018 Ford F-150 can tow more than ever before – and more than any other truck in its class.

Not only does this impressively powerful and efficient engine offer 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque while getting up to 18 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway, it can also help you tow up to 13,200 pounds.
